With an estimated 450 million people worldwide suffering from mental health problems, more health care workers now need a range of mental health skills in order to provide sufficient care across a variety of settings.
Written by leading authors in their fields, Eimear Muir-Cochrane, Patricia Barkway and Debra Nizette, The Pocketbook of Mental Health is a quick-reference resource that delivers practical strategies and skills for allied health and nursing students, health professionals, general practitioners, paramedics, police and allied health workers to implement. With a focus on social inclusion, recovery, culture and the promotion of consumer rights, this mental health textbook is a pivotal guide for holistic modern health care practices.
"This is a very useful guide to assist non-mental health professionals in making assessments. The book offers practical, hands-on strategies for what to do in commonly encountered situations with clients who are experiencing distress. "
